Ready. Set. Food! is aligned with the FDA’s Closer to Zero program for monitoring and reducing exposure to toxic elements in foods consumed by infants and young children. We use independent third-party labs to test our products and ingredients to ensure that our products are below the current and proposed action limits for heavy metals. Metals are found in the earth’s soil, some naturally and some through environmental contamination. (1) Because of this, nearly all foods may contain some level of heavy metals.
In addition to following FDA guidance on heavy metals, our Original Oatmeal and Stage 1 and 2 Mix-Ins have achieved the Clean Label Project Purity award. This means these products have been tested for over one hundred different chemical contaminants including heavy metals, pesticides, and plasticizers such as BPA, BPS, and phthalates. Products that are awarded the Purity Award are those that achieve the lowest levels of contaminants compared to the category.
